Back in 2011, you couldn't find a hotter TV commodity than Whitney Cummings, who managed to create two separate sitcoms that were both picked up by major networks. Two Broke Girls ran for six seasons. Whitney, which she also starred in, lasted just two, and the critics were, as they say, unkind. It would be impossible to capture the salty comedic edge Cummings brings to her stand-up in any network show — her mind is definitely more inclined toward cable's openness — and she's a natural on stage, slaying live audiences with an approach that inspired Variety and Entertainment Weekly to both tab her as a "comedian to watch" almost immediately after she got her start.
